POST-GAZETTE - Res Publica

On Tuesday Boston voters will help decide which candidates for President and Vice President will receive Massachusetts’ 12 electoral votes. We’ll also participate in selecting a man to represent Massachusetts in the United States Senate. By now you all know that the Republicans have put forth John McCain and Sarah Palin as our candidates for national executive office. Our GOP candidate for Senator is Jeff Beatty.
There are also three ballot questions to be decided.
You may vote in person on Tuesday, November 4th. In Ward Three of Boston where I live the polling places are:
If you are unable to vote at the polls on election day due to: (1) absence from your city or town during normal polling hours; or (2) physical disability preventing you from going to the polling place; or (3) religious belief; you may apply for an absentee ballot. Note, that when you mail back your ballot you must put postage on the envelope. Absentee Ballots are over-sized and require 59 cents postage. Please provide adequate postage to ensure delivery of your absentee ballot to the Election Department.
